Fiestify is an event discovery app to help people find great things to do in their freetime. They wanted to develop a vertical social network to increase the time users spend in the app. Time to market and budget were crucial as well as short development times for fast iteration and proof of concept.
The social network was built as a custom WordPress solution accessed via the app. We developed a user handover solution between the app to provide a seamless, single-sign on for users. To do this we partnered on the project with the fiestify app development team and the management team.
Users are able to sign-up, access and post on the social network with their Google or Facebook account login credentials used in the app. This way users enter the social network from within the app, even though it is a separate system.
We worked closely with the client’s design and marketing team to implement a fresh design and up-to-the minute user experience resembling key aspects of leading social networks.
In v2 and v3 releases, we worked with the team as more of the front-end functionality like video uploading was captured through the app and injected into the social network’s database.
